Happy Canada Day to all of our Canadian readers out there. I hope you enjoy the day off and partake in some typical patriotic nonsense like an overload of beer consumption, food and fireworks – all at someone’s cottage on a lake. The weather is supposed to be GORG here in Ottawa which will be perfect for the aforementioned activites – and coincidentally Wills and Kate’s visit. 🙂 In the spirit of Canada Day, I thought I’d feature some spaces decked out in red and white (like I did this day back in ’09)- and while red is probably my least favourite colour, it is a quick and easy way to inject some drama and energy into your decor.

Right back at you from Beautiful British Columbia. No sunshine here yet but fingers are crossed.
I wear a lot of red clothing but I must say I don't care for it in my home decor. Strange?

A very happy Canada day to you, Kim.. xx meenal

Happy Canada Day! What a beautiful inspiration! A red sofa or red rug in a white interior looks fabulous. 🙂 Ada

Canadians are wonderful! Happy Canada day!

Happy Canada Day to you too! It's gorgeous here in Saskatchewan too. I agree about the red… hard colour to decorate with/live with. However, I love that tiny attic bedroom.
